You realize the date may be the date the image was posted. Right after the merger there was a lot of ex MILW junk at Shoreham, but I thought most of it was disposed of during the nineties.

There are some photos from a different photographer dated 1985 that show it coupled to the same equipment as in the 2006 photos. Also the three photos dated 3/12/2006 appear to have been taken at different times: In the first two of that set, there is a crane parked on an adjacent track immediately behind the plow, but the last photo in that set is of other side of the plow which should be obscured by the crane AND that adjacent track is not there.

Did all of that equipment just so happen to get moved around while the photographer was there that day? And it's still coupled to the same B-Units as in the 1985 photos (unless of course they were kept paired together)

Back to the question, has the rotary been choped, donated or retained by the Soo?
